Scoot Launches Changi - Melbourne Flights

Scoot has launched non-stop flights between Singapore Changi and its fourth Australian destination, Melbourne.

Scoot will operate the route with Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft five times weekly, rising to daily during peak travel periods.

Scoot’s 787 Dreamliner features modern conveniences such as inflight internet and in-seat power throughout the aircraft.

“Scoot has long received requests to fly to Melbourne, Australia’s sporting and cultural capital, so we’re delighted to finally be doing so,” said Campbell Wilson, Scoot CEO. “We’re even more pleased to be using a brand-new 787, part of the world’s first all Dreamliner fleet.”

Scoot’s one-way fares from Melbourne to Singapore start from $209 economy (including all taxes), and Scoot Biz fares start from $499 inclusive of taxes, 30kg check-in baggage, and up to 15kg carry onboard bags, with a premium meal, priority check in and boarding.

John Eren, Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Sport and Veterans in the State of Victoria, said, "The arrival of Scoot to Victoria is a real vote of confidence in our visitor economy and a big win for our state. It gives more visitors from our key Asian markets a chance to travel here for themselves and see we have the best of everything."

The addition of Melbourne brings the total number of Scoot destinations to 17 in eight countries and territories.
